We were attending the wedding of a friend's daughter at the Dana, and stayed a total of four nights. The rooms were clean. comfortable, and appealing in our building (one of the older ones). The beds are a delight, with comforters and plenty of fluffy pillows. Our room was also very quiet, despite being in the middle of the building.
Although we didn't have a great view, we found the room's central location very convenient in meeting and keeping up with friends staying in the other buildings. All the rooms have a small fridge and microwave, a nod to the lack of breakfast restaurants (besides the Blue Pearl) nearby.
The location of the hotel itself is convenient to lots of local attractions. There are rentals for bikes for the bay trail and all kinds of watercraft. The hotel's lush landscaping and low profile (no higher than 3 stories) gives it a more deluxe, private feel than I was expecting. The Blue Pearl is a good casual restaurant, and the food and drinks at the Firefly were delicious.
The hotel staff were marvelously helpful and friendly at all times, whether it was talking to a housekeeper about our room, arranging for a late check-out, or dealing with some detail of the wedding reception in the ballroom. I was very impressed with the hotel on that basis alone.
I am trying to figure out when I can go the Dana for another delightful stay!
